    I assume that "off" means something different to you than to most people?

    I looked to see if there was a way to pin a note to the home screen, sort of as a persistent sticky... and couldn't find one. That's not to say there isn't an option in Good Lock or something. My suggestion would be to have Bixby remind you to check notes at a certain time, or after a certain period of time. While Bixby is pretty lousy at things external to the phone, she's (?) really good at things internal to the phone.

    you will need the always on display to do this. if you don't have that activated, then the screen is OFF. the phone assumes you want nothing on the screen since its OFF. AOD does not use up much energy so why not just leave it on?
    you can "pin" the note to the screen for 30 minutes or you can save it to the aod. these options are given to you when you pull the stylus out to write a note.

    On the Note 8 there were many reasons for me to not like the AOD on all the time and so I had it running from 5am to 7:30 so if I woke up way easrly I would know that if the phone acreen was off then it was way early and If I saw the time I knew how long I had left.
    Main reason on the 8 was that I couldn't use the FPS on the back and the iris scanner never worked with early morning gummed up eyes so I had Smart lock linked to my pebble.
    Because if notifications are available on the lock screen they are also on the AOD and I kept the phone in my shirt pocket It could occasionaly activate in the pocket via a notification icon. Best case battery drain. Worst case entire homescreens destroyed.

    On the 10 I find the AOD brilliant. I only have the cloc, date and battery now but do occasionally pin a shopping list to it from notes.
    Quick tip though. Don't get freaked out if you keep thinking you are getting a notification out of the corner of your eye and there is nothing there when you look. It is just the display moving to avoid screen burn.
